THE LAST EVER DURRR
**We are excited for Saturday night but are saddened to announce that Todd Terje has had to cancel his appearance at DURRR due to personal reasons (we wish him best of luck with the arrival of his new baby!). We would still love to see you all for our final ever party, but if you would like a refund please contact point of purchase these tickets will then be available for others to buy here. We still look forward to the debut of Rory Philips' live show Mixed Fortunes, Klaxons DJ set, Rory, Jonjo, Kiwi and a very special guest on the night.**
Seven years and over a hundred parties since the flashing fairground light was turned on for the first time, Durrr is throwing its final party.
Starting life as a weekly at the much missed club The End, Durrr Residents Rory Phillips and The Lovely Jonjo ensured that the party was the star while selecting their pick of emerging and established talent.
The memories are vivid: a debut show from Lykke Li delivered standing atop the DJ console, Dan Deacon transforming the main room of The End into a conga tunnel, Whitey delivering a blistering final London show, Connan Mockasin hypnotising us for the first time, a fresh faced Brodinski sipping his rider of Lemon Fanta between records, an early UK appearance from A-Trak, These New Puritans bruising percussion, Micachu's Hoover solo, Simian Mobile Disco's dazzling live show, Secret shows from Soulwax and Franz Ferdinand, Boys Noize backed by an original air raid siren.. and all of this on a Monday night for a fiver.
Around this time Durrr branched out to hosting events in other countries, bringing The xx and Metronomy with them to Paris and Late Of The Pier and Hercules & Love Affair to a party in Miami with their kindred spirits from New York, Fixed.
Upon The End's closing in 2009, and a riotous final send off with 2ManyDJS, Durrr became a nomadic weekend affair, with nights at Fabric, XOYO and Village Underground providing appearances from Factory Floor, Jacques Renault, Classixx, Kindness, Holy Ghost and James Murphy before ending 2012 with a weekender featuring a rare back to back set from Erol Alkan and Xavier Du Rosnay.
Which brings us to today, with Durrr choosing, much like it's parent club Trash, to end on a high with one last party. Beneath the fairground light that bears it's name and acts as it's beating heart, a colourful symbol of everything it is and was. We invite all of you that made it what it is to come dance under it with us for the final time.
